					?While running your own business is fraught with uncertainty, it can also provide
several benefits. In fact, most people who leave the corporate world to enjoy running
their own show can't imagine going back to work in their previous environment. The
lack of security of a regular paycheque, the absence of a managed retirement account
and other benefits of regular employment pale when compared to the advantages of
running a small business. Here are 3 powerful benefits of being your own boss...

#1 - You Choose Your Schedule

When you run the show, you can work whenever you prefer. If you want to spend the
afternoon with your family, you can wake earlier to get the day's work completed. If

They need another person to direct them each day. They're willing to accept the
drawbacks of working for someone else in exchange for that direction. But, the
benefits of being your own boss can be intoxicating for the right person. If you're the
type of entrepreneur who can run with the ball and motivate yourself to take action on
a consistent basis, you likely have what it takes to run a successful business. Consider
being your own boss. You may find yourself wondering why you waited so long.
